WHAT STUDENTS ARE SAYING
Discovery was an amazing opportunity! It taught me to find peace in the silence and challenged me to do things I could never picture myself doing. It was truly a pleasure to take Discovery, to reflect on my life experiences, as well as to enjoy new ones with people in my group.
–Travia Ballard '22, Communication Arts major from New Jersey
Discovery gave me the gift of courage and the ability to step outside my comfort zone to glorify the Lord. It held me accountable to my spiritual walk and gave me the hope that God can use me as a tool for his Kingdom. Discovery brought me to love others and be a light to those around me.
–Mariah Morgan '22, Early Childhood Education major from Pennsylvania
Discovery had a lot to offer—mainly in pushing me out of my comfort zone. What I learned about myself and how I interact with others impacts me every day and reminds me of my potential. I now know that I am capable of facing many challenges and interacting superbly with others. I will never forget this meaningful experience and the people alongside me.
–Sung Hyun Park '22, Business major from South Korea
Discovery was such an amazing experience. I learned so much about myself and God. I made some of the best friendships, which allowed me to be confident in starting out my first year of college. In Discovery, I learned the importance of unplugging from the distractions around me and to really focus my attention on God and what he wants for my life.
–Cara Petersen '22, Communication Arts major from North Carolina
Through Discovery, I was given the opportunity to meet people that I wouldn't have met anywhere else. I was able to build new relationships and expand my community here at Gordon. One lesson I learned is to try something new. Through trying something new you are putting yourself in a position of self-growth. I did every high ropes element I said I wouldn't do; then again, God always has a different plan for us.
